, it had been created by president clinton. the affordable care act will help provide the health coverage that is needed by millions of americans. i rise today to speak particularly about texas. some 24% of the population of texas are uninsured. and yet our state government has refused to accept the expanded medicaid. so today, mr. speaker, i make a public plea on behalf of the millions of texans who get up and work every day, who do not have health insurance, to be able to have a state government that is ignoring their plea, that is to have expanded medicaid to provide health insurance for working texans and poor texans. those that work as well below the minimum wage. it seems selfish that the concerns of those who lead state government are all political and not in any way concerned about the mothers and fathers and children who all the medical professionals from county governments to private practice have said expanded medicaid coverage, if taken by the state of texas, like florida, like ohio, will save lives. do it now. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back
after clinton had seen president assad in geneva. prior to the trip, the prime minister conveyed to us what it was he wanted out of it. he produced what he wanted to see come out of it. i walked into the meeting feeling highly confident. we did what you asked. the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. if you go into these meetings in the expectations are very high, each reader is suddenly worried about what you are going to ask of them. when are low, you are in a better position to have a serious conversation and can explore the possibilities. maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about, what are the consequences of not getting anything done? with each side. enough, howsevere can we think together about what it is that could be possible? where could there be some points of commonality we could build on? , theret you will have will end up being serious conversations in private that are much more likely to be held precisely because no one is anticipating that he is coming then
. my devotion to law and human rights and the guiding principles of my faith. host: hillary clinton taking up two cases on that. speaking of the supreme court, there's a "washington post" this morning. justices appear divided on an arizona law the federal registration form that congress does states the most accepting views require thoonl they swear under oath that they are a citizen but applicants require additional proof and the u.s. court of appeals for the ninth circuit ruled against the state saying arizona could not add requirements to the federal law. still a ruling for arizona could to door for states to add requirements to the federal registration form and the issue seemed to split the court along familiar eye logical lines. as we told you president obama heads to israel tonight and here's "the new york times," ama and in israel seeking to seek common ground with bring u and how to financial stability to a government crippled by international aid shortfalls and the obama administration last month unfroze hundreds of millions in assistance to the overnment of president mahmo
with john endingler, welfare reform happened in the states. newt gingrich finally got bill clinton to sign it into law a little bit later. you go all the way back to the early 970s when ronald reagan wasn't the president, but the governor of california, and tax reform happened in that state. and it wasn't until later, ironically back in california, when ronald reagan as the president signed into raw the economic recovery -- into law the economic recovery act. real reform happened in the states. as was mentioned yesterday, there are now in america some 30 states that have republican governors and nearly as many that have republican legislatures. [applause] and so that's the good news. the good news is we have success, and it's happening in our states, and we can learn from that to tell our friends and our colleagues in washington how to move forward. because, you see, in the states to be successful we have to be optimistic. we have to be relevant. and most importantly, we have to be courageous. let me talk to you a little bit about each of those three things. you see, when it talks about be
clinton and exploded our nation's debt. now after a decade of reckless financial management, the majority is proposing another budget that is unserious as it is extreme. take for example the field of scientific research. more than 50% of our economic growth since world war ii can be attributed to the development and adoption of new technologies. yet the budget proposed drastic cuts to research at the national institutes of health, the national science foundation, the national err naughtics and space administration, among others. as -- err naughtics and space ad-- arow naughtics and space -- a; eronautics and space administration as aamong others. you cannot turn on and off research like a faucet. under the majority's budget that valuable research will be ended and it's important -- and these important discoveries will probably not be made in the united states. the majority wants to impose such cuts on top of the cuts contained in the sequester, even though this effects of the sequester are just beginning to be felt. for example, in the coming weeks, airport control towers will begin to cl
with egypt was signed later that month. clinton came four times, and on his first visit israel signed a peace with jordan while he was here. george w. bush came twice, both times to build momentum for ongoing peace talks. but this time, you know there's no groundwork for peace talks. there's no signs of a strategy to resolve conflicts in the region. so the president's critics especially in this area worry whether this trip is little more than a courtesy call. they're grateful for the courtesy call, but strategically they question what he can really get done. >> interesting. jessica yellen in jerusalem. we'll be checking in with you tomorrow. thanks. >>> a convicted school shooter in court laughs off his crime and mocks his fate. his shocking sentence. that's next. humans. even when we cross our "ts" and dot our "i's", we still run into problems. that's why liberty mutual insurance offers accident forgiveness with our auto policies. if you qualify, your rates won't go up due to your first accident. because making mistakes is only human, and so are we. we also offer new car replacement, so if y

, it is fascinating. i've been here in the past with president clinton, with president george w. bush, now president obama. in the past the israeli-palestinian conflict is always at the top of the agenda but given the event in this complicated neighborhood that is now more complicated and confused than ever, the israeli-palestinian conflict is down on the list. the president wants to share information and get information from his israeli counterparts about what's going on in syria. did the government in syria use chemical weapons against its own people. that's a big question. obviously the nuclear showdown with iran. the presidentister wants assurance if that diplomacy doesn't bear fruit that the president of the united states is prepared to put the military option on the table. and, yes, the president did say he wants to have peace in the holy land and he will make that a priority. no accident the president says that this is the first international trip of his second term. >> this is no accident. across this region, the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportu
do because george bush was the dude p. had al gore won or bill clinton been in office, they would have tried different terrorist tack tucks and built a long standing goal for a long time but i really felt like they thought bush was the right guy for this strategy to actually work because it's just like yelling a homophobic epithet in a gay bar. you can't fight him because his friends are in the bar. it's that simple. this is interesting imani, you have condoleezza rice and the p.d.b. and donald rumsfeld and you go to war with the known unknowns you don't know. caller: you go to war with the army you have, with the military you have, you want or whatever that quote was. that was so awful. hal: yeah. the unarmorred humvees that you have at the time. you wrote an article about glenn greenwold and others who seemed to take an attack on addressing anything who didn't -- well, further of all, they were for it before they were against it and anybody against it from the beginning but then doesn't necessarily play by their rules gets attacked. it's a very strange thingings the thing that b
clinton? he came here four times as president. he was so deeply involved, we were both covering the white house in those days, in the camp david process and others, the israelis miss that, a guy who can draw the maps, president bush didn't get that involved. president obama hasn't gotten that involved. they're different people, personally and how they carry themselves politically and in their philosophies. the prime minister in cracking jokes when the president has landed is trying to say, i'm trying and now we'll see if the president is trying. >> we'll get back to jessica in a moment. tom foreman, this trip comes at a time when so many israelis feel increasingly vulnerable due in large part to the major political changes occurring in the region and their neighborhood. tom is taking a closer look at that region. what are you seeing, tom? >> john made references of being able to draw the map there. it is important to bear in mind the map here. look at where the president is visiting here, he's going to really a small part of a small area, but a very important part as you know, with stops
the clinton administration and later served as commissioner of new york city's department of housing preservation and development. we thank you mr. secretary for joining us and we look forward to your testimony. and no stranger to the united states and that's where she once once -- and was at the finance committee? it's great to see you again secretary darcy. assistant secretary for civil works of the u.s. department of army. ms. darcy became assistant secretary in august 2009. prior to -- i'm picking up a pattern here. prior to appointment ms. darcy had a long and distinguished careers as legislator. from 93 to 2000 she served as a professional staff member on the senate environment and public works committee which is in markup right now and she then moved on to the senate finance committee where i had just come from where she served on the senate environmental, senior departmental advisor and we thank you very much for your work and the work that is being done. we will ask you to go at it and start your testimony and try to keep it five minutes. if you go a little beyond that it's
and secretary clinton and now secretary kerry the mandate to push for a two-state solution. it's been difficult. i do think this is a significant visit. his first visit as president and secretary kerry obviously has come earlier and is going to be staying later and doing a little shuttle diplomacy. the palestinians are very skeptical. but i do believe that they would view the president's visit and look for any opportunity to get these talks restarted. of course, they've been on the sidelines, waiting for what they see as a critical issue, the settlements to halt. israelis have said, look, we're ready to talk at any point as long as you don't put p preconditions on these talks. >> i'm glad you brought that up. ambassador, i'm glad you brought that up. really interesting report in "the new york times" today says an internal palestinian memo suggests that president abbas may no longer call for the israelis to publicly state they will halt the settlements. in other words, they're not going to make that a precondition to negotiations anymore. if this is true, would that be a significant development
to president clinton. monica crowley radio talk show host. both are fox news contributors and welcome to both of you. tough, tough topic here. not yet confirmed. there are still fish shuns widespread, what to do if the red line is crossed publicly many times? it was not the first time. there was august of 2012. >> we've seen middle east dictators show no hesitation to use these chemical agents before. assad's own father used them. 40,000 syrians killed in hama. saddam hussein didn't hesitate to use chemical weapons against his own people and the iranian people. we know there is pattern in the middle east. the question is whether or not it actually happened here. when president obama talks about the red line being crossed, use of chemical agents if in fact that is proven would be the red line and i would believe provoke u.s. military intervention. bill: doug, what do you think?. >> i couldn't agree with monica more. let's be clear. this is the interest of the united states and our only stable democratic ally in the region, israel. israelis said, two ministers said yesterday they have definitiv
that, the israeli leadership doesn't trust him. to borrow an old phrase from our friend bill clinton that dog won't hunt after this trip at least in the short term. look at these pictures tonight. president obama at a state dinner in his honor in israel sitting shoulder to shoulder, literally at times forehead to forehead with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. for several minutes the two leaders, allegedly this frosty relationship, joking, laughing, talking, covering their mouths to make sure those with cameras couldn't figure out what they were saying. this the latest in several scenes where both of the leaders, maybe they're acting but they are very good actors if they are. they have made a clear decision to try to get along better as they move on to the long list of challenges. as the trip wraps up in the morning if there is a risk for the president it's this. he came in with low expectations and may have raised expectations and hopes too high. you've covered this issue for many years. the president talking to young israelis today demanding they challenge their leader
including by special appointment by both the clinton and bush justice departments. he's established himself as a tireless public servant and a defender of the public interest. and for these reasons and more we, the ncrc, awarded him with the henry b. gonzalez award in 2010 for his outstanding public service. and so we're pleased to have him here. so help me welcome the director of the cfpb, richard cordray. thank youment.

hillary clinton. and president obama at the house with had a special irish message. >> obama: there's an old irish saying that is the recipe for a long life is to leave the table hungry, leave the bed sleepy leave the bar thirsty, we'll see if that works tonight. [ laughter ] >> bill: and president obama took chuck todd to task for asking too many questions. >> another question i have for you -- >> obama: chuck how many you got. you are going to do this to the israeli press -- you see how the young lady from channel one. she had one question. >> bill: yeah, come on chuck. and finally weatherman says birthday to a very special friend watching the channel. >> any way, christie and joe hornton ninth anniversary, and hugh jaynus turning ten.

clinton has called this feeling of disbelief on both sides. so i'm still not convinced yet, joe, that this administration wants to go into laborious detail when it comes to trying to broker a peace agreement, particularly because of the threat that iran poses because of whatever the end game is in syria. those concerns may overwhelm. >> let's go to senator coons on syria. just curious in terms of, obviously, the topic of chemical weapons is being raised now as a possibility. the president has called that a game changer. some would say that 70,000 people dead might be that as well. are we talking now about the inevitably come action here, collective or singular? >> yes, mika. i think it's important that the american people be aware that circumstances on the ground in syria continue to change in ways that will move us closer and closer to some sort of multilateral action, particularly if there is a confirmation that the assad regime in syria has used chemical weapons in violation of international law and basic humanitarian rights. i think it was vital that president obama went to
on my list. on new york's lower east side, the clinton's baking company delivers exactly what i want for breakfast, but i can get them anytime of day. they have these incredible pancakes with blueberries. the pancakes are so fluffy. and i can get them for breakfast, which is great, but there are lots of crowds, or i can get them for dessert. not bad. >>> it's the role that put harrison ford on the map. >> laugh it up, fuzzball. >> laugh it up, fuzzball. that's one of the great lines from the "star wars" series and harrison ford could be back as hans solo. listen to what he told cnn affiliate, wgn. >> i think it's almost true. i think, you know, i'm looking forward to it. i'm -- not in the bag yet, but i think it's happening. >> ford turns 70 years old next year. "star wars" episode 7 is still in the early development process. we'll keep you posted. >>> the cast of "the mary tyler moore show" will reunite on the tv show "hot in cleveland" and be prepared for witty comments like this one. >> there's my sweater! i knew it left it somewhere. hi. >> hi. >> mary? >> yes, sir. >> where have
where we have been involved on almost a daily basis. first, secretary hillary clinton helped to spearhead the reforms bat created a coherent syrian opposition council. now you have the secretary kerry, who is deeply involved in that effort as well. we are providing not just advice, but training and capacity in order for that political opposition to maintain links within syria and be able to provide direct services for people inside of syria, including the relief efforts that obviously we are seen here in jordan, but there is a whole bunch of people internally displaced inside of syria who need help. i think that what your question may be suggesting maybe is, why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and you know, i think it is fair to say that the united states often times it finds itself in situations where if it goes in militarily, and if it does not, then people say, why are you doing something militarily? and you know, my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contribute to bringing an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. and working in a multilate
been clinton. it was an executive order, if you look it up. i just looked at the extra taxes and the things being added on now. it is really threatening to the american public to hear all of this. this is a medium we have all learned how to use. we have all enjoyed it. host: we will leave it there, charles. is this a case of the law trying to catch up with the events -- advancements in technology? guest: i think it is. our understanding of how the law should apply to whatever we do online has changed as well. in 1986, we were not storing our most private documents in the cloud. you are not using texting medications as a substitute for making phone calls. now we do. we expect that we communicate with someone through e-mail, there is a certain level of privacy attached to those communications. be a little bit ahead of congress. the court -- caller may be a little bit ahead of congress. the court of appeals set individuals that a reasonable expectation of privacy when they used an e-mail to communicate. that expectation does not go away when the e-mail reaches a certain age. we
be deported, was constantly reported to the federal board. this was when bill clinton was president. finally he hit someone again and he came before my chord because that bumped up to being a felony. i understand. we took him to the board and released him, i often want to know, did you stick around long enough to watch them come the border or did you drive away after you dropped them off? this is a huge problem. with each one of these federal felony convictions, it means we are paying for a prosecutor, law enforcement to get these people, then a prosecutor. we are paying for a defense attorney for them. we are paying for the officers for the prosecutor, the offices for the law enforcement, the judges, the appellate courts, and the number one conviction is for federal felony reentry after they have been deported? when i start thinking about that fact, it becomes pretty clear the best thing this administration could do for this country is secure the border so they do not have to keepre-catching the people who have already been deported. to heck with how much a wall costs or drone coverage. wha

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: i'm just titillated by the whole thing. >> we've had several stories about when i ran 20 years ago and when i ran this time around and so a lot of the stories were about that. typically, you know, the more progressive. >> stephanie: you know what's interesting is i think it has become -- nonpartisan issue. i wouldn't say bipartisan, would yo
la renta. his fashions have been worn by first ladies, including nancy reagan, hillary clinton, and laura bush. when he was asked in mexico city over the weekend why michelle obama hasn't worn his work, he answered candidly, blaming himself for saying stupid things. >> a relation that started off poorly, well, i don't think will end any differently. >> reporter: in 2009, oscar de la renta criticized mrs. obama for wearing a cardigan when she went to buckingham palace, heeds on more criticism when she wore this dress for alexander mcqueen, a european designer for a state dinner. oscar de la renta did have high praise for the first lady, calling her an extraordinary woman and says she represents her country well. but just as quickly as he praised her, he also seemed to entangle himself in yards of controversy by suggesting the first lady wasn't quite the fashion trend setter everyone thinks, instead it's the everyday woman who sets the fashion tone. >> translator: i've found an anonymous woman walking down the street is a woman who influences fashion today, not a movie star, firs
things. for instance, first term of the obama administration, secretary clinton tries to signal friendship, february 2009. the second month of the administration. they go on a bender for more than a year. so i think what we're doing by going there first we're feeding their already inflated sense of self-importance. i don't think this trip is going to work. adam: there have been i don't want to say military skirmishes, but instances where they cut off u.s. navy vessels in international waters. that happened three or four years ago. there is the incident of the cyberattacks which have been traced to china from the united states. secretary lew would be discussing that with chinese leaders. why would he be discussing that perhaps not mr. hagel or secretary kerry, secretary of state? >> secretary kerry will discuss it a couple weeks time when he goes to beijing. every administration official is doing this. the reason is last tuesday the director of national intelligence james clapper identified cyber attacks as the number one security threat to the united states. we all know where th
along with president bill clinton. out of that plan we actually did balance a budget and led to one of the healthiest economies we have had. president obama should do likewise. work with the republicans in congress together to put forward a plan that will in fact balance a budget and help american families enjoy real prosperity and a much more secure retirement. >> good morning. this is a good week for house republicans. this is also a week of contrasts. years.get balances in 10 their budget never balances. and raises $1 worth of taxes. i think the question for the american people s. which budget actually helps? which helps people? well, i would say that a balanced budget is going to help grow our economy and provide the certainty needed that so many people out there looking for the government to do the very same thing they are having to do at home. which budget helps those who are in need? our budget provides a prescription to save the social safety nets of medicare, medicaid. theirs doesn't. theirs brings about the demise of those programs. which budget brings about the kind of ta
at president bill clinton who balanced the budget with a republican controlled house. opportunity and jobs ran rampant. we need to return to that today. so we are asking this president, please, work with us, mr. president. but what's worse than all of this is how senate democrats have failed to serve you. the last time that they even passed a budget was before the ipad existed. before the ipad existed. we are willing to compromise. we are willing to work with people, but how can we work with senate democrats when they are not working at all? they are not doing their job at all to serve you, the american people. their budget right now that they are working on does nothing more than raise taxes. they want more of your money, more money out of your paycheck. ask yourself does washington really need more of your money? we are $16 trillion in debt. we have deficits we can't even wrap our arms around, and they want more of your money. if you were a financial advisor that put you $1 million in debt and ripped through your college savings for your children and all of your checking account and said, ju
balanced the budget. i was note those were the years when we had a democratic president, president clinton, we were working off of the 1993 deal that was made to both reduce spending and increase revenues. we had growth in the economy. we had low unemployment. we balanced the budget for five years in a row. now, during that time -- during that time our revenues averaged about 20% of our gross domestic product. now it's down to less than 18%. so -- and we also know that demographics, including the tens of millions of baby boomers becoming eligible for social security and medicare, will place vast new demands on our budget. at the same time we need to make investments in infrastructure, research, education to prepare our young people and our economy for the competitive global economy that's coming. i remind my colleagues that when president george w. bush's tax cut was passed in 2001, it was defended on the grounds that it was only going to take a small part of the projected surplus as that we were going to have for the next ten years. that was -- that's what was said. well, as we now know,
. you might say the clinton and bush position of being close to israel. in the first term he wanted to create distance. he was kind of appealing to the arab countries and that's over. he's not saying-- he's kind of changed his position and the question, does he really mean it or is it just talk? >> we asked at the beginning what did president obama accomplish his goal? here is what the president said about what he intended to do in israel. listen. >> put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. it's not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow he up he-- up in a state of their own. >> clayton: and the president said he wanted the opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people at a time when they're obviously dealing with some major, major problems as it relates to the palestinian people and syria, iran and others, did he accomplish his goal? >> i think he accomplished a the lot of it. he made himself seem friendlier to israel and kind of put the palestinian issue to the side. and because iran and syria are so much more important. he told the palestinians
president clinton had seen president assad in geneva in january 1994. and prior to the trip, we had, you know, the prime minister conveyed to us what it is he wanted to see come out of it. and we actually produced what it is he wanted to see come out of it. so i walked into the meeting with rabin feeling highly confident, you know, all right, we did what you asked. and the first thing he did was immediately devalue what i came with. now, why did he do it? because he knew i was coming to ask something of him. and if you go into these kinds of meetings and the expectations are very high, then each leader is suddenly worried about what you're going to ask of them. when the expectations are low, you're in a much better position to have a serious conversation, and you can actually explore, all right, what are the possibilities here. but maybe the way you frame that conversation is by talking about what are the consequences of not getting anything done with each side? and if the consequences are severe enough, how can we think together about what it is that could be possible, and where could t

this issue that in january of 2001, when president bill clinton left office, this country had an annual federal budget surplus of $236 billion. a surplus of $236 billion in january 2001. we now have an $850 billion deficit. what happened? well, i think many americans know what happened. when you go to war in afghanistan and iraq and you don't pay for those wars, you add to the deficit. when you give huge tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this country and you don't offset that, you add to the deficit. when you pass a medicare part-d prescription drug program, you don't pay for that, you add to the deficit. and on top of all of that, we must understand that right now at 15.8% of g.d.p., revenue coming in to the federal government is the lowest that it has been in 60 years. and the reason for that is that we are in the midst of a very serious recession, a recession caused by the greed, recklessness and illegal behavior on wall street. and not only has that led to significant increases in unemployment and businesses going under; once again, it resulted in less tax revenue coming in to
